A Metro police officer indicted last year on suspicion of prescription medication fraud lost his job with the department Monday.
Officer Donald Lawman, 36, was decommissioned in May 2010 after police learned of his possible criminal activity. Last May, a grand jury indicted Lawman, along with his wife Jennifer Marie Vardaman, for allegedly obtaining prescription medication by fraud.
Lawman was fired Monday at a disciplinary hearing regarding the allegations of prescription fraud. The criminal case against the two is still pending.
Lawman graduated from the Metro Police Training Academy in November 2007.
